Business Litigator Dorn Bishop Joins Hull McGuire's San Diego Office as Of Counsel

SAN DIEGO, June 1, 2004 - Business litigator, environmental lawyer and former Assistant U.S. Attorney Dorn G. Bishop has joined the San Diego office of the Pittsburgh-based law firm Hull McGuire PC as Of Counsel, effective June 1. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Dartmouth College (B.A. 1986; History; with highest honors), Mr. Bishop received his law degree from the University of Chicago Law School in 1989, where he was an Associate Editor of the University of Chicago Law Review.

Between 1990 and 2001, Mr. Bishop was an associate and later a partner in the San Diego office of Latham & Watkins in its Environmental Department, where he focused on a broad range of land use, statutory and insurance litigation matters. Between 1997 and 2001, Mr. Bishop also was the head of Latham & Watkins' Insurance Practice Group, where he represented corporate clients in administrative proceedings and commercial litigation.

Former Federal Prosecutor

In 2001, Mr. Bishop became an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of California, where he was undefeated in over twenty jury trials. His work for the U.S. Government included the prosecution of criminal cases involving fraud, drug smuggling, bank robbery, alien smuggling, and illegal reentry of convicted felons. He argued several appeals on behalf of the U.S. before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and never had a conviction overturned.

Lawyer's Lawyer

Mr. Bishop comes to Hull McGuire as Of Counsel after building a successful law firm of his own focusing on business litigation, with a particular emphasis on representing policyholders in insurance coverage disputes, environmental law and white collar criminal defense. "Dorn Bishop's well-known and proven abilities as a trial lawyer complement our business litigation and environmental practices, each of which span the U.S.," said Daniel Hull, a Hull McGuire Shareholder in San Diego. "Dorn is both talented and extremely versatile -- a lawyer's lawyer with lots of experience servicing high-end clients like ours."

Mr. Bishop lives in Scripps Ranch, California with his wife and two children. He also is a world class backgammon player, has won major bridge tournaments in both the United States and Canada, and is an ardent student of jazz and jazz history.
